1.) Please contact Sylvia De La Cerda, Administrative Manager at (361) 887-6291, ext. 104 or by email at : sdelacerda@feedingamerica.org to let the Food Bank of Corpus Christi know you wish to sponsor a food drive. Please provide the exact dates for your food drive including all locations of food collection points along with a point of contact for your organization.  The Food Bank of Corpus Christi can provide  55 gallon collection barrels upon request. Contacting the Food Bank of Corpus Christi before you begin your food drive is very important as we help promote the food drives via our website and social media sites. 2.)  Upon the conclusion of your food drive, you may deliver your collected food directly to the Food Bank of Corpus Christi warehouse located at 826 Krill street.

If you need help in transporting your collected food to warehouse location please contact Frank Gallegos, Transportation & Maintenance Manager at Work (361) 887-6291, ext. 107 or by email at fgallegos@feedingamerica.org. Once the food has been either delivered or picked up by the food bank it will be inspected, sorted and boxed for distribution. A receipt of the amount collected by your food drive will be mailed to you or your organization so please provide an address and all relevant contact information. 3.) Please remember community food drives include all canned goods and non perishable food items.
